Whether you're training in Davenport at the Bix at 6 or you're heading to the bike path, it's going to be hot. So if you plan on exercising you'll want to take extra precautions.
It might be a good day to head to the gym and work out inside. But if you really want to go outside experts from the American Red Cross say don't go during the afternoon. It's best early morning or at night.
Another thing to keep in mind before you head out is to wear loose–fitting, lightweight and light colored clothing. Look for breathable fabric that will let your body sweat and cool itself down.
Then once you're exercising experts say it's so important to drink lots of water or sports drinks, and take extra breaks.
Remember just by going out in these temps you're at a higher risk for heat illness.
"Make sure that if you start to feel warm, if you start to feel like maybe you're experiencing heat cramps, heat exhaustion, get to a cool place and cool yourself down immediately," said Betsy Pratt from the American Red Cross of the Quad Cities.
